General questions

To transform any sentence into a question you can simply put the word “czy on the beginning and make the stress go up at the end of the sentence. Examples:

Czytam książkę. – Czy czytam książ?

I’m reading a book. – Am I reading a book?

Piszesz artykuł. – Czy piszesz artykuł?

You’re writing an article. – Are you writing an article?

You can also skip the word “czy” and use the same affirmative sentence to pose a question. Just remember to make the stress go up at the end of the sentence, so that it sounds like question. Example:

Czytasz książkę.  – Czytasz książ?

You are reading a book. – Are you reading a book?

Precise questions

If you want to make a detailed question about something with the usage of an interrogative words, then instead of “czy“, simply use the interrogative word and put stress on it. Examples:
